Pharmaceutical line clearance reimagined

At ACHEMA 2024 (Frankfurt, from 10 to 14 June 2024), Schubert-Pharma presents new vial packaging machine for the first time.

This makes it even easier for pharmaceutical customers to guarantee the required line clearance. As always, visitors will have an opportunity to receive advice from Schubert-Pharma on all aspects of automated pharmaceutical packaging solutions. Experts from Faller Packaging will be on site to answer any questions relating to packaging materials.

User-friendly: table-top design facilitates line clearance
At the 2024 edition of Achema, Schubert-Pharma is presenting its new vial machine for the first time at a fair displaying many years of experience and expertise in packaging vials, ampoules, syringes and other products for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. The rationale behind the development of the new machine was to enable manufacturers to meet line clearance requirements even more effectively, ensuring a streamlined, orderly work area to prevent product mix-ups. Pharmaceutical technicians have to carry out a line clearance after packaging a batch to ensure that all products have been removed from the machine before a new batch is started.

A vial machine for different formats
One, three, five or ten vials can be packed on the new packaging machine - either horizontally or vertically in the carton compartment. Packaging five vials into cartons will be demonstrated at ACHEMA. They are fed into the machine using a turntable. At the same time, the 5ct cartons are erected in two lanes and placed on a Transmodul, Schubert’s transport robot. The compartment for the 5ct carton is then erected and glued into the carton. A pick & place robot picks up the vials arriving on the infeed conveyor and groups them upright on the Transmodul. During this packaging step, there is no glass-to-glass contact thanks to the robot’s individual picks, so that everything is packaged securely for the pharmacists. An F2 robot is then used to load the 5-pack formation of pre-grouped vials into cartons. A tool tilts the upright vials into a horizontal position. Finally, the booklets are fed to the magazine in two lanes, destacked and loaded into cartons following a code check. The glued cartons are then closed and placed on the outfeed conveyor.
